Announcing the First Annual 2024 AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry

It’s Spring! We are pleased to announce the first annual
AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry.

2024 Spring Scurry

What is the AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry?

The AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry is a virtual 5K (3.1 miles) that people do with their dogs. The non-competitive 5K Spring Scurry can be done all at one time, or in smaller segments on multiple days so that everyone (people and dogs) can participate at their own pace. This can be a walk or run activity.


  • Starting on March 19, 2024, you and your dog can begin walking/running towards your 5K.
  • The 5K (3.1 miles) can be walked/run all at once for people and dogs who are fit, or you may break your 5K into as many days/sessions as you need to keep you and your dog safe.
  • You and your dog can do the Spring Scurry on your own, with a group of friends and their dogs, or with your AKC FIT DOG club.
  • This Spring Scurry can be done anywhere that you and your dog are welcome to walk/run – in a local park, on a trail, or in your neighborhood.

Registration Fee

How It Works

  • Document your distances and times on a smartphone, smartwatch (or similar device), or on an AKC FIT DOG Documentation form.
  • Order your AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry medal.

The AKC FIT DOG Spring Scurry is done on an honor system.
